so im a bit confused, do you want to be able to tow your 6x6 on it too??

if so i recomed something like a 6x10 or 6x12 utlity trailer and make some 2-3ft tall wood sides to hold in decoys


but look around your town/city for some good trailers, most should be pretty well built. but some good brands that have held up for me, my family, and friends around here are DOOLittle, PJ, Haulmark, Maxwell, Feather-lite, and lots of other good brands out there.

I'd also recomend atleast a 14in wheel, you'll have less trouble, and should be easier to find parts for the axle and hubs if you need them. (I highly doubt you will with a new trailer) but id also look for a used trailer they can usualy be had pretty cheap, ive seen trailers that are only say a year or 2 old go for 60-65% of the new price.

oh and BTW those 6x6s are sick! my friend has a 4x4 ranger and it blows our mule out of the water!
